This is hilarious; I greatly enjoyed your "prose".  And I am very 
carefully considering Florida. I am working in Boca Raton now.  It is 
very "tropical looking".   Normally I would just simply ask the 
people who grow things, but I have yet to find anyone working in a 
yard who spoke anything other than Spanish here (seriously).  

Several people have suggested "wintering in Florida" but I am curious 
about that.  If you have an orchard up north don't you still have to 
return when it is pretty darn cold to observe your plants for dormant 
spraying, and bud breaks?  I mean where I am (in a political and 
social hell hole outside of Chicago IL)Feb-April can range anywhere 
from +60 to -20.   

So I am curious does anyone who grows much actually do the Florida 
winter thing?   How do you time your return?  Do you have a set 
schedule or do you observe weather patterns?  

Wishing all of you the very best,

job but someone has to do it)
